The Karma of Illness (Zoom)

Friday 17 November 7pm - 8.30pm

with Dr. Peter Gruenewald*

Suffering from a chronic physical or mental illness can be an existential challenge that may seemingly limit our self- expression and even social reach. It can be caused by experiences and deeds in previous lives but may also be a preparation to acquire new life skills for a future lifetime. In fact, organs that are weak in one incarnation, may become organs of strength in a next life. All illness, even physical illnesses have to be understood from their spiritual, soul, vital and physical and social aspect. Once we understand these dimensions of illness and its individual purpose, we can start to work on improving the conditions by
means that strengthen our physical, vital, emotional, and spiritual constitution. We will in this context look at two statements: “All illnesses are musical problems.” (Novalis) and Paracelsus: “The foundation of all medicine is love.” We will explore the question: How can we use spiritual development and initiation to work towards a true and sustainable state
of health, physically, vitally, emotionally and spiritually?
